in missouri to run for the united states senate, this guy, todd akin, with his views? >> it was a three-way primary, and the far right, very evangelical, religious base of the republican party, the mike huckabee, rick santorum wing of the republican party coalesced behind todd akin in the primary and in a three-way primary, that was enough. >> earlier this week akin is back in shape here i guess in terms of the establishment. he had this to say about your debating style. take a look. >> the first two minutes it was like somebody let a wildcat loose and so we went at it for about an hour. >> he said he was surprised about how you attacked from every different direction. you know, as if it was a debate or something. he said you weren't very ladylike. let's check that thought from him. >> she was very aggressive in the debate, which was quite different than the way she was when she ran against jim talent. she had a confidence and was very much more sort of ladylike in the debate we had friday. she came out swinging, and i think that's because she was threatened. >> well, today akin denied
accelerator. as you look across the united states, you seatons of small urban businesses that are running on a razor's edge when it comes to cash flow. at the same time, you see numerous university students that are well-educated and eager to get into the communities that surround their campuses. what we've done in an effort to mobilize these two groups is formed the boston university urban business accelerator where we send student neems underserved communities to work with the small businesses within them. over the course of ten weeks, they implement quick books for the business owners and use it is a means to compare the business owners against industry averages as well as identify areas within their business for cost savings. what our program needs is $250,000 so that we can launch this program across the united states serving the underserved communities that need it the most. what you will be doing is investing directly into students' education and the economy as each business we works with saves money, retains jobs and creates jobs for the economy that we are all a part of. thank yo
. >> and when i become president of the united states. >> i'm going to win pennsylvania and i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> we'll be talking with our political journalists about all that in just a moment. today there's reaction and a rare reversal from u.s. intelligence official on what happened in libya. officials now admit they got it wrong. the director of national intelligence office says "we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information." and the intelligence community now believes it was a "deliberate and organized attack" which left the u.s. ambassador and three others dead. now members of congress from both parties are demanding answers. on the ground in benghazi, investigators can't even get to the scene. nbc's mike viqueira is joining us from the white house with more on this. mike, how big a deal is this reversal? >> reporter: well, it's very controversial and potentially a big deal. the question all along is ever since those september 11th attacks what caused them, what was the motivation for the people who killed four americans including
the president of the united states who signed his initials saying, nfl fans on both sides of the aisle, hope the refs lockout is settled soon. the settlement became a bipartisan issue and it brought out none other than packers' fan and union busting wisconsin governor, scott walker, who two weeks ago had nearly all of his infamous anti-collective bargaining law struck down by a wisconsin judge. he chimed in on twitter writing after catching a few hours of sleep, the packers game is still painful, #returntherealrefs. mitt romney chimed in saying, i'd sure like to see some experienced referees. with nfl experience come back out to the nfl playing fields. that was after his running mate, paul ryan, also of wisconsin, used the monday night football debacle as a convenient political metaphor. >> did you watch that packer game last night? i mean, give me a break. it is time to get the real refs. you know what? it reminds me of president obama and the economy. if you can't get it right, it is time to get out. >>> all of the pressure and not necessarily from politicians helped bring about a deal bet
. one of the least controversial things you could possibly imagine the united states government agreeing to. well, a bill to adjust that payment for the cost of living was brought to the senate floor last thursday. it was expected to go ahead, no mus, no fuss. who is going to argue with that? but it was blocked by someone in governor romney's party. an unnamed republican senator has put a hold on the cost of living adjustment to the surviving children and spouse's. the same bill is holding up the wounded in the war. governor romney, i realize you're having a hard time getting the training wheels off but here's an easy one, should someone from your own party lift that hold from those people, should the republican senator holding this up keep that hold in place or drop it. you're the leader of that party. do you have anything to say on this? 24 hours later it turns out governor romney does not have anything to say on this. but since that angry little report on this show last night, today whoever the republican senator was who was holding up that payment to veterans and their family, today
to show that this is above the political cycle here in the united states. look, we've got elections next year in israel. we know what elections are. we know the competition. we know what that involves. this issue of iran and nuclear weapons has to unite all free people. it's not nothing to do with the election. >> can you characterize the relationship between mr. netanyahu and governor romney? are they casual friends? are they good friends? are they acquaintances? >> they've known each other for quite some time, even going back when they were young people. i've been in meetings where the two gentlemen have met and talked. i think it's a good working relationship, as he has a good working relationship with the president where you have mutual respect between the two leaders. under these very lines, the very close relationship between israel and the united states, such a close relationship, an intimate relationship. and every little disagreement, and you can't agree on everything. >> sure. >> gets blown out of proportion like there is some crisis there isn't. we have a good working relation
? that makes sense. one of the least controversial things you could possibly imagine the united states government agreeing to. well, a bill to adjust that payment for the cost of living was brought to the senate floor last thursday. it was expected to go ahead, no muss, no fuss. who is going to argue with that? but it was blocked by someone in governor romney's party. an unnamed republican senator has put a hold on the cost of living adjustment to the surviving spouse's and children's payment for soldiers killed in the war. the same hold is also affecting the disability payments to soldiers who are wounded in the war. some republican senator is blocking this. we don't know who. governor romney, here's a place to start. you are now the leader of the republican party. i realize you're having a hard time getting the training wheels off when it comes to nation 58 security. but here's an easy one, should that senator from your own party lift that hold on the cost of living adjustment to the payments to those people who we sort of owe it to? should a republican senator who is holding this up
properly appreciated the gravity of the house crisis in the united states, and putting -- fixing that in a way that people could either try to save their homes, refinance, even if their home value is underwater, but they had equity in it. so i'd say this more as preemptive, and since congress is so unpopular, doesn't hurt to blame them. >> and here's the thing with housing, lynn, not to get off on a tangent, but one of the things that's rarely addressed is a lot of the folks who desperately need to refinance their homes, their credit has taken such -- it's been battered so badly during the crisis, they don't qualify for the refi. >> well, and i'll do this quickly. that's my point. if you talk about why people might hone in on this issue and why obama's focusing on this, before the debate, where it is likely a reasonable thing to guess that it might come up, is that he realizes that this is a vulnerable area, achilles heel, and now trying to shift the blame ahead of time to congress. i say this is a little bit of setting the stage for obama vulnerability that people can relate to.
more than 1/4 of chinese exports come to the united states. if you have a customer that's unhappy with you and that customer buys 20 or 30 or 40% of your products, you're not just going to turn your back, you're going to work with them. and the chinese work with us when we actually stand up to them on these issues. president clinton did it with intellectual property from time to time and the chinese would respond. there would be histrionics, they'd scream and yell and then they'd change their behavior a little bit. the same with these issues when we've enforced trade rules. i want a good trading relationship with china, i just think it's too one sided. i think americans when the congress, when the international trade commission, when the department of commerce, when the white house, when the congress stands up, when we all stand up it makes a huge difference and the relationship will settle in in a way a bit more advantageous to the united states of america and to our manufacturing companies, the smaller ones especially, and the workers in this country. >> that's in some ways what
as if there are only about 28 undecided voters left in the united states of america. very small percentage. even if governor romney convinces 51% of these undecideds to support him, doesn't he also have to peel away votes from president obama to win this thing? >> well, sure. i think one of the fallacies about independent, undecided voters is that we don't look at the people who say they're for president obama or governor romney and look at the people who weren't very strongly committed to casting their votes, the people who we call in the business leaners. someone's leaning for obama, but when they're asked, are you absolutely certain you're going to vote for obama, no. but they're leaning to obama. those votes are up for grabs. just as the leaners romney are up for grabs. it's more than just the people who say they're undecided. those leaners can be persuaded by debate performance. and let me tell you, look at governor romney's performance last week in education nation, at our station, at the clinton global initiative, he sounded good, he talked policy, he was on his game. anybody who thinks t
literally or virtually or almost destroying the solar panel manufacturing sector in the united states. but he went after them and that's shifting and and now the solar panel manufacturers are founding stable ground on which they can now expand and build american jobs. >> and what do you make of the romney campaign running the majority of their china ads in ohio? is that maybe to counter the success of the automobile loan? >> absolutely. there's no doubt about it. but there's so much more that we could do, ed. for example, we ought to be using our tax money to buy american made equipment. china's doing that and using our money in china to build chinese products. we need to do that back home. that's my legislation. make it in america, use our tax money to buy american made equipment. >> and the republicans aren't on board with that? >> no. my opponent actually opposes that, thinks that some sort of regulatory thing. i'm going wait a minute, it's good public policy. it works. right here in sacramento, a german company is manufacturing locomotives, 70 of them, 100% american made because t
